We have a new format at the general meetings which includes special programs and the business part of the meeting starting at 6:30 PM and will run until 7:30-8:00 PM.

EXOTIC MEATS: WSA is looking for the donation of some exotic meat for the Game Feed next year. If you are going on a special hunt or fishing trip that allows you to have more than you need, WSA will pay the expenses to ship the donated portion of the meat back. For further information contact Matt Gutzwiler at email@example.com.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY: We all have our own way of celebrating the 4th of July; to some it brings thoughts of summer picnics, to others just a day away from the hustle and grind of a day at work. These are well and good, but there is an old 18th century parchment paper that has the writings that cost our founding fathers everything they held dear. Liberty’s reasoning is the life blood of our country, or at least it should be. Too many people have either forgotten or don’t care to know the real cost of our liberty, our freedoms, and our lives free from the tyranny that once was a new colony in the Americas. Now we are too busy to stop and read the Declaration of Independence at www.ushistory.org/Declaration/document/. Many of our children are not taught the true meaning of this document. This year, take time to read the Declaration of Independence as a family or at a gathering. Reflect on the deep meanings and the carefully worded sentences. Then take the time to remember those who have paid the price for our freedoms and think about what you can do to keep those freedoms from being dissolved by those who say they want to serve us. God Bless America and America Bless God! Read the full newsletter here.
The May general meeting was our annual business meeting. Each year we vote on the Board of Directors (during odd numbered years) and, every two years, we vote on the Officers' positions (during even numbered years). This year, we had three board members that removed themselves from the activities of the Board. WSA would like to thank Sharon Rose, Ron Poppe, and Ric Johnson for their service and dedication to the WSA. We wish them well. They are being replaced by, Ryan Los, Dave Dahlon, and Jim Ross. We look forward to working with them and moving forward with the activities of the coming year. Read the Full Newsletter Here.
This will be the third meeting with the new format. The meetings are now much shorter, more informative and allow more time to talk with fellow members. Come and join us for an enriching evening. There have been some requests to change the start time of the meeting from 7:00 PM to 6:30 PM. If this is of interest to you as a member and it means the difference in attending or not, we need to hear from you. Please direct comments on this to the " Contact Us " section of the WSA website. We look forward to your responses. Read the Full Newsletter Here.
The next general meeting will be at 7:00 PM and end at around 9:00 PM. We will be having a special presentation from the Enforcement Officers of the WDFW. At the beginning of the meeting, they will be sharing the issues of our area and taking our questions. We will be talking about the Game Feed and the Sportsman's Show. There will be an opportunity to be involved in the events and activities that are coming up this year.
